So far i have only tinted my tail lights and made a ford brake light. I'm trying to get ideas.

I mean post anything that is custom made on your explorer like lights, intake, interior, exhaust, ect.

Thanks in advance

Not sure if this counts, but...

294K miles on the BII, 3-4 original parts left aside from the body and frame
the pass side window motor, the rear wiper motor and the heater controls are all still factory and working, everything else has been done, redone, customized or upgraded

Front suspension, front and rear bumpers, doors, interior etc...

When you say Custom, I assume that includes everything that I have swapped out in favor of something better...whether it be 'custom', 'aftermarket', or an OEM part used in my vehicle...

That list is VERY long..but let's see what I can remember..

I started with a 1992 100% stock Ford Explorer XL (read: STRIP DOWN model), as for OEM equipment I have added:

Power Windows
Power Mirrors
Overhead Console (Temp & Compass)
Limited Leather Seats
Limited Door Panels
Limited Grill
Limited Headlamp Trim
Limited Leather Steering Wheel
Limited Center Console & Arm Rest
Limited Driving/Fog Lamps
18" Saleen Rims
Sport Gas Tank

For "Aftermarket/Bolt-on" Stuff that I have done:

3" Drop Leafs in the Rear
2" Drop Block in the Rear
3" Drop I-beams in Front
2" Drop Springs in Front
Explorer Express AirDam (last one they had!)
Hurst Shifter
"Altezza" Tail lamps
6 pc Clear Front Lamp Set
CrossDrilled & Slotted Front Rotors
BBK Throttlebody
iFab Open Air intake Filter, and polished intake tube

And as for CUSTOM stuff:

CanDo Specialties Rollpan
Shaved Rear Hatch w/ Flipped T-handle
Shaved Doors
4.5" C-notched Frame

There is quite a bit more that I want to do, like air bags, make some custom mirrors, UnderDrive Pulleys and and Electric Fan,that should hold me over until I can someday do a 347cu. in Motor swap.

mini frige,

So far, thats the one I want to hear about the most.

As for me, tranny gauge on the pillar, switches in the headlinger and console, front suspension, rear bumper, front hitch and im sure some other junk.
